Launch Bermuda April 2017

“This Sunday is the first opportunity for the public to participate in the Community Grinding Challenge. The grinder machine captures and logs all data generated by each user. It captures the amount of spins or rounds per minute and the energy that´s being generated, giving readouts so that users can set themselves against each other, and measure their output levels.

“Each participant will be on the machine between 10 and 20 seconds and the resistance of the grinder will change for each age group. Participants are allowed one try on the grinder per event but can enter the competition at as many events they wish.

“The Challenge places participants in the following categories:

  • Male and Female Students [14-18]
  • Male and Female Open [18-39]
  • Male and Female Masters [40-49]
  • Male and Female Senior Masters [50-59]
  • Male and Female Grand Masters [60+]

“The top three entrants with the best output numbers in each category will be invited to participate in the finals on the main stage of the America’s Cup Village, where a winner for each category will be crowned.”
